Conclusion: I have had this for about a month and love it....I am still learning all of the features but I have to say that this is the best camera I have owned. The images are very clear and bright, zoom is fast and so is shutter time.
Conclusion: OK. This is not a high end camera. It will never be used by CNN! That is OK. This is a good camera for the average home user. It at a bargain price, and it has some great features for the price. If you need a good hand-held video camera and you do not have money to burn, this does the trick. As married seniors on a fixed income budget, this camera fits my own and our needs at a price we can afford!
Conclusion: Great Camera and Video recorder for the price. I haven't been able to get the downloadable owner's manual, but have managed to figure out how to maneuver thru the menu options.I agree with others about the battery life, but still doesn't change my mind about the overall value or price of the product.
Conclusion: Excellent picture quality, imagine stabilization is adequate but not outstanding. The size is perfect, fits easily in shirt or shorts pocket. The battery life is average, but get a spare or two.
Conclusion: a)the quality of the images are excellent <br/>b) the ease of use is excellent <br/>c) the compactness of the camera is excellent <br/>d) the battery life is excellent. <br/> <br/>All in all, excellent!
Conclusion: So its best to use outdoors in the daytime or in a well lit room. For still pictures there is a flash though. All in all, for what i need it for, it works for me. great for spur of the moment use or even as a first camcorder for teens.
